Newly acquired center Marcus Camby is expected to make his debut for the Houston Rockets during Sunday's game against the Phoenix Suns.
Camby expected to be available. Deals should be complete by 4 p.m. in PHX. Martin feeling much better yesterday after change in treatment.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) March 18, 2012
Camby was acquired in a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Jonny Flynn and Hasheem Thabeet. Camby was not in uniform for Houston's 95-91 loss to the Clippers on Saturday as he was awaiting Thabeet and Flynn arrival in Portland and their impending physicals before the trade could be finalized.
Jordan Hill was moved in a separate deadline deal and Camby is expected to provide depth to the frontcourt behind Samuel Dalembert and Luis Scola. The Rockets have been playing shorthanded with injuries to Kyle Lowry and Kevin Martin in the backcourt. Martin is reportedly feeling better but no decision has been made on his status for Sunday's game.
